I have these books for loan to the wlug lib:
Python In A Nutshell
Alex Martelli (2003)
- An excellent intro if you've had some previous experience with a
programming language. You may not need another book.
Sams Teach Yourself Perl in 24 hours
Clinton Pierce (2nd Ed, 2002)
- This gives a simple first look at Perl. You may not want another
I take that you own these books, and are willing to loan them to other WLUG
members, as opposed to you want to gift them to the library in the old
P.S. Are user contributions useful and encouraged or
our main source.
Publishers are the main source, but every little bit helps!
There's a bunch of useful (maybe a bit older) books on sale at all sorts of
places at the moment - $30ish, from Books'n'More in Downtown Plaza, The
Warehouse etc. If you want to buy one of those and donate it to the
library, you'd be appreciated.
I'm not sure how we're looking after users who want to lend material to
other people. John?
